In my last post I talked about my first attempt at making a blue cheese. Things have progressed with these “Little Blue Barrels” and now they are covered with wonderful blue mould, the geo that I added has started to bloom and give some nice wrinkles too.
It is amazing how much a difference a week can make when aging these little things. I am constantly surprised at my sudden affinity for these cheeses that I swore I would never makeNow these little beauties were ready to be wrapped, but with what? They are a hybrid cheese, a combination blue-bloomy semi lactic, so would I use microcrystalline paper or foil? I have lots of the paper and I don’t have any proper blue cheese foil.
In the end I took the advice of one of the pro’s that follow me on Instagram.
